They have said in countless interviews that they wanted to create something that didn't sound like Daft Punk because they feel like the current EDM scene is stagnant and not growing. They even said that they know some Daft Punk fans will hate the album and they wanted that.

I agree with their motives and direction. I hope they don't just get comfortable and go back to their roots with their next album but branch out even more.

Good God, am I gonna get mobbed for expressing a dissenting opinion?

Okay, internet, here we go:

@Wpnfire:
Oizo: it would take you three clicks to figure it out so... I care?
Miss out on good music, not my loss.

Next?
@djchameleon:

I mostly agree.
As stated before, it's their life. Whatever.
I wasn't expecting them to redo Homework, but evolve into some new forms.
When AFX s/t came out it was GROUND BREAKING. Totally new...

Y'know, like an ARTIST is supposed to do?

Not redo Euro-Disco/ R&B.
And, the albums not ALL bad, as i already said, I was just ...

...when I heard it.

And, concerning the hype surrounding it....
I mention oizo, etc cuz he's (and others are) breaking, slightly, new ground...

Listen if Daft Punk wants to remake themselves into a Pharrell Williams/Mirely Cyrus/ T-Rex hybrid....


GOOD FOR THEM!!!!
Doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to express my opinion online about it?

You do know this is a music forum where people state their opinions and then other people are entitled to comment on said opinions creating a discussion. I know you feel like you are being attacked for having a negative opinion but that's not the case at all. We are just engaging you and trying to understand why you feel the way you do to create a discussion. You know bantering and what not.

Actually, you see it as re-doing Euro-Disco/R&B but that sound is just not around right now. Everyone is too busy emulating the same sound that Daft Punk created in the past and for the most part everything sounds way too similar. The reason why the sound that you don't like became popular is because it's not over saturated and people wanted a change of pace.

DJ what is EDM? I'll guess at electronic dance music but why has this term started to be used so much?

I agree with all you said, and, thank you for being civil.
Some say nothing 'new' can be done, we're in the age of digression.

Or just rehashing and combining.

But, I, at least, feel the 90's IDM scene, such as it was, with new tech, brought along a whole new kind of music.
Now, it did obviously share traits, etcetc, but...'new' enough to really separate it. (<~~my banter)

Since then, I've heard a few new changes in EDM that, I thought, warranted a 'WOW'.

OffMeNut, Hyperdub, etc. Planet Mu.

But, from some band with as much talent as 'DP', I really expected something more.

Trust me, I really wanted to like the album.
It just seemed boring. And, including modern pop stars just...makes me
think they're comparing Italio-Disco with Modern pop ****. Fitting. But, essentially, 'daft.'

P.S. The whole 'IDM' scene has been incoporated into 'Breakbeat'. So...that too...


Just a 'recombination'...nothing new here?
Maybe so, I found the recombination much more pleasing
than the heralded 'Random Access Memory'. MUCH more.


Daft Punk re-doing Moroder (which we all 'discovered' 3++ years ago)
w/ Pharrell Fckn Williams?
C'mon...


Hope their next effort is much harder. and better.
Faster, stronger. Etc.

It is just a generic term to talk about electronic music without going into details about the specific sub-genres since there are so many.

I feel like they were going for a timeline of EDM through the decades that's why they tapped into the past. You see it as just re-hash but I see it as a history lesson for people that aren't initially into the scene.

that's fine If you didn't like it or found it boring. Like I mentioned earlier even DP knew that not everyone would like it especially certain DP fans.

Wow, you're very on point. Very good. I'm, frankly, impressed.
Well, as said, I hope they get back to us old schooler's and do the PUNK part.

But, alas, people age, and their perspective changes and...Daft Punk seem to be going in a more mainstream style. It happens. I think MOST people will like what they heard on RAM, because it's new to them. saying, 'Some won't like this.' is not a bold statement. Maybe, they needed the funds to produce another 'real' album that won't cash in as much? His dad was a record exec, right?

I'm sure he knows how it works.
